Nevada Governor vetoes Domestic Partnerships Bill

26 05 2009

According to Jim Gibson it conflicts with the 2002 state’s amendment against same sex marriage.  He says gay couples should resort to legal contracts between themselves to protect their assets. What he seems to overlook here is that even though personal legal contracts can be made, the extra taxes gay couples then have to pay over their partner’s assets is much more then  the amount married/domestic partnered couples have to pay.

Nevada also might lose some of the estimated $700 Billion in buying power from the LGBT community. One of  the reason why Harrah;s entertainment and the Nevada Resort association were in favor of the bill.
